I’d further point out that the car seems to be a VW Beetle rather than a Morris Minor.

See, I know very little about music, but if I were drawing that cartoon, I'd go and look it up...

Good attention to detail there, though less so in the title of this thread... ;D

You know what makes me cringe?

Wet nylon shower curtains clinging to me.

As a bass player I'm not familiar with the treble clef.

Double-them-up. Install two shower curtains on the shower rings/clips. This will make the curtains
heavier when wet, thus they are more likely to stay in their vertical position. :thumbsup:

It usually indicates your shower is too powerful.  Bernoulli's principle - the water entrains air, the moving air has a lower pressure, and the curtain is sucked in.

There is no such thing as a 'too powerful' shower.

What's wrong with you man?

Weight the bottom of the shower curtain.
Use little magnets to stick it to the side of the bath.
Move the rail further away.

In the office, the loos had some airblade knock-off driers.

It was a useful stress measure whether my teeth would grate as I dried my hands.

Now they have new actual dysons (the downward pointing V ones) that are mounted far too high up the wall. Makes me cringe in a different way...

On the topic of shower curtains ... I have long harboured the thought that all this "shower uses less water" is probably way out of date.
- depends if you have an eco shower (just enough water and no more) rather than a power shower
- depends if you are happy with 5" or fewer depth of bath (after a childhood of minimally filled baths I thought 5" shockingly deep) rather than up to the overflow thingy
In the dark, all views are the same.

I just assumed the clingy shower curtain was a kink for people not yet ready for the full rubberwear experience.

I have a shower door though because I'm not that sort of person.

Japanese style bath here. Both soak in the same hot water bath, all actual washing done in the adjacent shower tray to avoid contamination. 8)

American baths, deep enough to immerse your butt crack, I have no idea about those, more so as the average American is about three times bigger than me. Maybe they are for their fat feet. They generally do know how to do showers though, I never encountered a British electric-powered dribbler, though to be fair, given weedy American electricity, it literally would be drip drip drip. You'd confess to everything. Or volunteer to be waterboarded, just make sure the water is hot.
